Oh, I have posted here before under the name 'Voltero', This relates more to Peter's philosophy of telling a story visually, and leaving some ambiguityso that the viewer has something to discover when watching. I don't know how successful I was, but I tried to incorporate these things into this work, with the hope that David Lynch himself would watch my submission. Sadly, while the contest was advertised this way, it wasn't really the case...

Wow, some intense traversing going on there. Witness the cold power of the human social machine. Or something like that I thought.
The stag thing was interesting for me, as I've recently been wondering about there significance on a symbolic or otherwise strange level. I think it has something to do with an enhanced presence that can be found unbearable if not beautiful... Thanks Josh.

your welcome, Sam.
I was pulling from a larger personal mythology for a lot of the images. The stag like figure was combination of certain specific symbols, the 'pagan' or 'cultish' iconography that hass come in to the pop consensus lately, and I had been reading up on dreams and nightmares, a common nightmare that children have is being attacked or dominated by threatening animals. Since the characters have 'thrived' mostly in a urban environment, I though a fear of nature (a.k.a the unknown) might be an innate aspect of their respect psyches
